    Prev of 2 2 Next. I have like most here, heard all the lines about it being a Mondeo with a Jag badge on it etc. Was Mondeo it was based on really that bad a base for a car? Yesterday, I was given a lift in an X-Type estate. It wasn't in the first flush of youth - a 55 plate I think - but it was well screwed together, the owner told me he loved it. I think I could find an excuse to find room for one in my life. They really are cheap. Are they cheap for a reason though?

    What am I missing? Why is the X-Type so unpopular? Kentish 15, posts months. Personally, I like them but on test driving 2 I found they were not Jag like enough for me no magic carpet ride, trim rattled etc. If you can live with the looks, the S-type is more of an old school Jag. I suppose the fact of it being similar under the skin to a mid-market car didn't help underline its credentials as a vaguely fancy car. On the other hand, the Mondeo was regarded as a pretty good motor in itself and the fact of most Audi A4s being FWD and related to virtually every other car on planet Earth didn't diminish that car's appeal among the masses.

    I guess the looks weren't much to write home about, but to my eyes they were OK. I remember my boss had one many years ago and I was a bit sniffy about it but I was quite impressed by its interior and refinement on the road. Other than that, my Mondeo which was like-for-like very similar in engine, gearbox and chassis spec felt a little 'lighter on its feet' whatever that means to drive.

    On balance, I'd say the X-type was a better car than its reputation suggests, and pretty good car in itself. It seems to have a rather negative sense about it in terms of it not selling well enough for Ford to justify keeping Jaguar, but you see plenty of them about.

    The S-Type attracted me when it was new. My old man seriously considered one, but I guess it was pitched at people like him. I don't think the S-Type has aged well. Not that I dislike it. It was a great loking car at launch in There is just something a bit tragic about it. I think it is because I know a poor man's Arthur Daley type in my area who tools around in one. The X-Type looks perfecty OK to me.

    The front end looks like a Jag, and the estate body is pretty enough. Like a posh Volvo V I have to say, I am tempted by somethign with a big engine. My MG is a lovely old barge, it really is, but it aint got any poke. V8RX7 16, posts months. SLCZ3 1, posts months.

    Still have one actually. The AWD ones don't actually drive much like a Mondeo at all in my experience, and when really pushing on the AWD X-Type is the more capable car which will power oversteer if seriously provoked. The X-Type either feels more planted or the Mondeo lighter on it's feet - take your pick depending on what you prefer. I can prefer either depending on the car. There's enough different to make them completely different to drive, but on the other hand the brakes and suspension arms are Mondeo cheap so it's possible to completely renew all your bushes and balljoints for well under a grand and make it feel brand new again unlike the S-Type and everything upwards which is significantly more expensive to buy parts for.

    The S-Type is by far the better car though. Perception is the problem with that too though - by far the most opinions and assessments on how balanced and well set up the suspension is coming from impressions of pensioners based on it's looks.
